I chose Mirella as my mentor for my PPCC certification course due to her formidable mix of qualifications as both a qualified coach and psychotherapist and was not disappointed. Mirella’s approach was to focus on the core competencies needed for qualification, and her feedback was always rooted in how to notice, and improve these competencies, as the basis for coaching. She was also very practical, using the reality of over 2000 hours of coaching to illustrate how this translated into real life. I also really appreciated the practical discussions on the differences with her other specialty of therapy which were hugely insightful. I made significant progress under her guidance and would very happily recommend her to anybody looking to learn and improve their coaching skills.
